‘’ A massive thanks for the help and support at the British Shooting Show and British Shooting’s first appearance at such an event. On behalf of British Shooting I thank you. Your team nailed the BSS2017! ’’

Gorgs Geikie, British Shooting

‘’Just to let you know how much we enjoyed the show.

 Can I make a special mention for Dave the van parking King and his sidekick Gary – they both made everything very calm and organised by Hall 3. 

 Also thank you for the Maude and Fox mug and drink mat – brilliant! We shall use them in the office – or maybe just look at them. 

 Thanks again – everyone who came on our stand seemed to love our clothes. Lots of people had seen ‘The Doris ‘on your website so that worked well. ’’

Sue, Maude & Fox

Hi John and team,

Quick thank you to everyone at the British shooting show – another phenomenal event – loads of inquiries – lots of solid sales – well organised – thank you and see you next year!

The Boxall & Edmiston team

Boxall, & Edmiston

Hi John,

I just wanted to put fingers to keyboard to thank you for an amazing 2017 British Shooting Show.  It was a genuine pleasure to be a part of it and I thoroughly enjoyed every day.  This year the show was equally busy for us on all three days and it was not until 3pm on Sunday that we were able to relax a little.  I did not get off the stand once this year so was not able to see any of the other Halls at all.

I must compliment you on the organisation and your staff.  Everyone was welcoming and pleasant and the show was the most stress free I have ever attended anywhere.  The security staff were, as always, efficient but friendly and they kept us well informed at all times.

We did excellent business and I am still writing orders taken at the show.

You can definitely put me down as “Attending” for 2018, I would not miss it for  anything.

Best regards,

Alan Rhone
